PETE’S PAGE; FRIDAY FUNHOUSE

Posted by Pistol Pete

Today’s weather here is the only condition that truly terrifies me…freezing rain. I got stuck on the ice numerous times and didn’t get some of my papers delivered because of the hills in the neighborhoods. At some point,I decided that if my boss wanted my job he could have it (it’ll never happen,because he’s short-handed as it is.) Heavy snow predicted from tomorrow PM until Sunday PM. We got to WalMart about 8AM this morning to finish getting fixings for Christmas dinner. There just hasn’t been enough time to get everything done. Made reservations for our annual new year’s eve dinner at our favorite steakhouse. We eat about 5:30 and by 8 I’m turning in for the night. Such is the life of the old and worn out.

Meanwhile,let’s have a little fun. Grumpy cat Christmas card coming Monday. Be here.

Catholic Doctrine on Holy Scripture

Dear God

“The books of Scripture firmly, faithfully, and without error teach [the] truth. … Written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, they have God as their author” (Second Vatican Council, DV 11).

The Bible did not fall from heaven in its final form, nor did God dictate it to human scribes who copied it down mechanically. Rather “God chose certain men who … made full use of their own faculties and powers so that, though he acted in them and by them, it was as true authors that they consigned to writing whatever he wanted written, and no more” (Second Vatican Council, DV 11). One factor in recognizing particular texts as Sacred Scripture was their general acceptance in the Church. In the Christian communities there had to be a consensus: “Yes, through this text God himself speaks to us-this is inspired by the Holy Spirit!” Which of the many original Christian writings are really inspired by the Holy Spirit has been defined since the fourth century in the so-called canon of Sacred Scriptures.

How can Sacred Scripture be “truth” if not everything in it is right?

The Bible is not meant to convey precise historical information or scientific findings to us. Moreover, the authors were children of their time. They shared the cultural ideas of the world around them and often were also dominated by its errors. Nevertheless, everything that man must know about God and the way of his salvation is found with infallible certainty in Sacred Scripture. (Youth Catechism questions 14-15)
